can you run terminal services and domain controller

Last Modified: 2013-11-21
Can you run a server as a domain controller and a terminal server at the same time?  If so is there anything specific I have to do.  I tried to setup a terminal server with activer directory it told me it need a domain controller which means i had to install the DC software along with DNS. When i went to log in as administrator it did.  But when i went to log in as a user it wouldnt let me. I did put the user in the remote desktop user group.
